Hi I'm new to the forum and maybe this has been asked before so appologies...
I think the CDS and PowerApps is a fantastic idea however I was wondering if there is a way of importing/ exporting pictures into/ out of the Common Data Service. I have used MS Access for all my business needs. I use it for observations/ inspections where I take pictures and import them into the database and use these for detailed reports. I was wondering if you can do this with the CDS? It's getting the images out!
Can you point me in the right direction?
Please check this thread for a reference, @Vijeta mentioned that in future we will be able to bulk import images through the data import functionality.
I also test this issue on my side. I create an entity which has an image field. I add images through PowerApps, the images are displayed well on the app.
However, when I try to export the data to Excel, the image field doesn’t appear on the Excel, though I have set it as Required.
So I am afraid that it has not been supported yet currently.
I haven’t seen similar request on PowerApps Ideas Forum, please consider to create a new one, and I will suggest other customers who have the same request to vote your idea at here:
Thanks @v-yamao-msft .
Do you know of any advances in this regard? We are hesitant of using any database that doesn't allow us to extract the information we add to it.
